Tools and Roller Cabinet

Various suppliers provide this list of tools and a roller cabinet at a discounted price range of $1,500.00 – $3,000.00. These discounted prices are offered to students enrolled in the AST program.

If you decide to purchase tools and a toolbox without using financial aid, you may use any tool vendor that can provide the required tools and box size listed on the AST required tool list.

Please note: When purchasing tools and/or toolboxes from a vendor other than the bookstore, have all shipments delivered to your personal address, NOT Century College.

A bookstore deferment system is in place for students who qualify for financial aid to purchase the required tools and tool box for the program. The deferment can be used at the College bookstore 30 days prior to the start of the school year. The bookstore tool set and box is from a pre-selected vendor with an approximate cost of $1,500.00 including tax.
